Strawberry Salad with Balsamic Dressing
For the salad:
2 cups ripe Harvest Haven strawberries
8 cups mixed Harvest Haven salad greens
1/2 red onion
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1/3 cup feta cheese crumbles
Fresh ground black pepper
For the balsamic vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons olive oil
Wash and slice the strawberries. Wash and dry the salad greens.
Thinly slice the red onion.
Optional: In a small saucepan over medium heat, toast the nuts for a few minutes until they are golden brown, stirring frequently and watching carefully so that they don’t burn.
Make the balsamic vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and salt. Then gradually whisk in the olive oil 1 tablespoon at a time until fully emulsified and creamy.
To serve, spread the greens on a plate and top with strawberries, red onion, almonds, feta cheese crumbles, vinaigrette, and several grinds of black pepper.
